Lasting long in bed doesn’t necessarily mean that you are trying to overcome premature ejaculation. You might be a man who lasts twenty minutes and wants to know how to carry on for an hour.
There are simple yet effective techniques that help men last longer in bed.
1. Engage in Foreplay
Foreplay is part of sex. It’s the build-up to the main event, but if your foreplay game is on point, your lady will deem it to be part of the main experience.
You’re unlikely to ejaculate during foreplay, so if it’s good and it lasts for fifteen minutes and the sex lasts only for ten minutes, your lady will consider it to be twenty-five minutes of intimacy.
Learn to use your tongue on her vagina and incorporate touching and kissing.
2. Pace Yourself
Nobody is expecting you to bang your lady like a jackhammer for the entire duration of the intimacy. You don’t have to go from 0 to 100 in the first minute and keep that moment throughout the sex. You can start slowly, then increase the pace. Or if you’re going to go hard at it, you can slow it down, take a break and then pick it up again.
Monotony gets boring after a while, regardless of the level of intensity. An element of surprise is always intriguing, so if you’re slowly banging, then suddenly increase the intensity and hold it for a few minutes, your lady will enjoy it more than just having the hard intensity the entire time. Then slow it down, and take it up a notch again. Keeping her guessing about the aggression is a turn-on, and pacing yourself will help you last longer.
You can even pull out your penis and take a breather if you feel that you’re about to ejaculate.
3. Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor Muscles
Some experts believe that men may struggle to delay their ejaculation if their pelvic muscles are weak. Pelvic muscles are below your prostate and rectum. These exercises occur through a series of contractions and releases.
To get a sense of your pelvic muscles, feel the parts of your body that cut off urine when you’re in the bathroom. After you’ve deliberately cut off the urine flow, release it, then cut it off again. Repeat that process until you’re certain about the parts of your body that control those actions.
Once you’re certain of the parts, you can sit or lie to tighten your pelvic floor muscles. Hold the muscles tight for three seconds, then release. Repeat that about ten times throughout three sets. The best part about this exercise is that you can do it anywhere.
4. Try the Squeeze
The so-called squeeze technique is somewhat tied to pacing yourself because you’re releasing tension. When you feel that you’re about to ejaculate, pull out your penis and squeeze just below the head.
Make sure that you apply a significant amount of pressure with your thumb and index finger to the urethra or the tube that’s on the underside of the penis. This helps push blood out of the penis and decreases sexual tension.
5. Masturbate Before Sex
Having sex, especially with someone you highly desire, tends to motivate your to climax as soon as possible to feel peak pleasure. Being too excited about it will make you reach the finish line much faster.
If you masturbate before sex, your initial excitement might be delayed, and you might need extra time to climax. The key thing about masturbating before sex is to know your personal timing. You don’t want masturbation to affect your performance.
Practice a few times to see what the sweet spot is. Masturbate two hours before the sex. If that’s too much time, reduce the masturbation to an hour before sex. The time will vary for every person.
